Harry Partch @ Mills College w/ All Female Band

Uploaded by MindsiMedia on Jan 5, 2012

Here we offer an all to brief look at a live performance at Mills College by maverick composer Harry Partch. He was a man who not only built his own instruments but really did march to his own beat. Mills being a women’s college the instrumentalists making this beautiful music are all women.

There is an excellent web posting about Harry and his instruments on the NPR web site. http://musicmavericks.publicradio.org/features/feature_partch.html
